Tower Hamlets 2 Redbridge 4

Jacob Dingli’s hat-trick led Motormen to Essex Senior League victory at Mile End Stadium.

Dingli struck twice in the space of a minute to put the visitors on top at the break, but O’Neal Rowe replied three minutes into the second half to halve the deficit.

It was 3-1 on 64 minutes, though, as Dingli completed his treble and Joe Gent added a fourth for Motormen, before Ade Oreniake’s injury-time reply for Hamlets.

Redbridge moved up to 10th place as a result, while a fifth successive loss leaves Hamlets down in 18th and preparing to host Hullbridge on Monoday evening.


Ilford 1 Hullbridge 1

Ilford were denied a third win in four Essex Senior League outings as Hullbridge grabbed a late leveller at Cricklefield Stadium.

The Foxes, having beaten West Essex and Sporting Bengal either side of a home loss against Clapton, were without manager Allan Fenn, as he served a one-match touchline ban.

But they made the breakthrough in the second half as Liam Whipps put them in front and it looked like being enough for all three points, until Charlie Little produced an equaliser on 80 minutes.

The draw leaves Ilford down in 13th place, with several games in hand on all of the teams above them, and facing a trip to Wadham Lodge next weekend.


Sawbridgeworth 5 Barkingside 1

Barkingside were left to rue a slow start at Crofters End as they fell to a heavy reverse against the Robins.

With manager Gursel Gulfer serving a stadium ban, the visitors found themselves two goals behind inside 10 minutes as Gavin Cockman and debutant Toby Cleaver struck for the home side.

Luke With hit back midway through the first half to halve the deficit and give Barkingside new hope, but they conceded a third to Cleaver before the interval.

And Cleaver completed his hat-trick in the second half, with Cockman also on target again to make it a nap hand for the hosts.

Barkingside slipped to 11th as a result of the defeat and are set to welcome fifth-placed Basildon United to Cricklefield on Monday.

Barkingside: Francis, Ambrose (G Ademilyu 46), Wright, Birch (Mitchell 78), Ajoodha, Campbell, Glancy (Ajammah 60), Laird, Lutaaya, Ruzgas. Unused sub: Okoh.
